An Annapolis County man charged with second degree murder will have a bail hearing in November.

Jason David Bezanson, who was charged in connection with an alleged incident at the Travel Lodge hotel on Westville Road on Sept. 7, will have a bail hearing in Pictou Supreme Court on Nov. 7.

Bezanson was charged with second degree murder after police responded to a 911 call at the hotel and found a 39-year-old man from Annapolis County not breathing with signs of trauma in a hotel room.  The man was taken to the Aberdeen Hospital with serious life threatening injuries and then airlifted to a Halifax hospital where was pronounced deceased. As a result of an investigation, Bezanson was arrested and charged. Police say the two men were known to each other and the alleged incident was the result of a disturbance between them.

Bezanson also returns to Pictou provincial court this coming Monday to set a date for a preliminary hearing.  No pleas or elections have been entered into court.
